It was Deep Purple's second single release in 1971, and peaked at number 15 on the UK Singles chart.[1] It is one of several songs based on Ian Gillan's real life experiences: "She was a complete mystery to me. This is another tale of unrequited love", he explained.[2] The song begins with the sound of an air conditioner being turned on, recorded by assistant engineer Mike Thorne. Roger Glover suggested to engineer Martin Birch that the sound of a machine starting up would be a good way to begin both the song and the album, but Birch could not think of anything available that would fit the purpose. Thorne suggested the sound of an air conditioning unit and duly recorded it to the band's delight

Exciter (song)
"Exciter" is a song by British heavy metal band Judas Priest, from their 1978 album Stained Class. It is the opening track and is an early example of speed metal. 1990 trial[edit] During the 1990 civil action brought against the band, "Exciter" was played backwards to the court. Lead vocalist Rob Halford demonstrated that, when played in reverse, the song appeared to contain the phrase: "I asked for a peppermint, I asked for her to get one."[1] This action showed that by playing any song in reverse, phrases could be formed by the human brain. The same point applied to "Better by You, Better than Me", which had a sound that could be interpreted as "do it". Track listing[edit]Side ANo. Title Length1. "Exciter" 5:34Side BNo. Title Length2.
